Hello! I am a PhD student in The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sydney. My research focuses on the application of pure mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems in applied mathematics and statistics. My primary collaborator (& best friend of 25 years) is Max Menzies.

My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Commerce (Int'l Studies) at The University of New South Wales where I studied Finance and Statistics. I have had various industry experience in investment banking, investment management and technology start-ups in San Francisco and Sydney. Before commencing my PhD I completed a Masters of Data Science at The University of Sydney.
